NOTABLES: FAU Football Holds First Fall Scrimmage

Add topic

Post



Florida Atlantic University's football team held their first scrimmage of the 2021 fall Saturday night, and did so under the lights of FAU Stadium and on Howard Schnellenberger Field.
 
The Owls went through the paces of a controlled scrimmage allowing each of the quarterbacks to see time under center in various situations, with various units and versus various defensive units. All was done with an eye on finding the best 11 to put on the field on both sides of the ball at any given time.

Notables

  • The defense forced the offense to punt in each of the first two drives
  • Johnny Ford gave the Owls' offense their first celebration with a 53-yard touchdown run
  • Quarterbacks Nick Tronti and Michael Johnson, Jr. both found John Mitchell for gains of 30 or more yards
  • Marlon Krakue broke up a pass as did Akileis Leroy
  • Placekicker Aaron Shahriari proved to be the leg to beat on multiple occasions
  • Johnson used his legs to get the Owls near the end zone and his arm to hit Aaron Young with a 13-yard pass
  • Zuberi Mobley punched one in and Larry McCammon III had an 18-yard run
  • N'Kosi Perry found Austin Evans in the end zone and Willie Taggart had a connection with Jefftey Joseph
  • Antarius Moultrie had a lot to celebrate on Saturday, including stopping a runner at the line of scrimmage, and his defensive teammates prevented a would-be two-point conversion
  • Kelvin Dean, Jr. was a part of a long drive, including four consecutive runs of 45, 10, 10 and eight yards
  • Decarius Hawthorne had a huge stop with an animated celebration
  • The scrimmage, like everything the Owls have done in camp, was laid out in a competitive format and scoring system. The offense held a 24-16 lead at the "half," saw that lead evaporate and trailed the defense well into the second half, but then came away with a 69-54 win
